Smiles at Waterloo offers one-hour teeth whitening and take-home whitening systems.

One-Hour Teeth Whitening

How does teeth whitening work?
With Opalescence Xtra Boost, your teeth will be whiter before you even leave the dental practice!
This advanced product does not require a laser or a light to be activated. We can now whiten your teeth through enhanced chemical activation, without harmful ultraviolet rays or uncomfortable heat.
The product is simply activated as it sits on your teeth.
It is so easy and simple, and your teeth will be noticeably whiter in about an hour.

Will your teeth need additional whitening?
The best kick-start you can have to whiter teeth is with the in-office procedure.
But it is likely that you’ll want to continue whitening after the in-office procedure to ensure your teeth achieve their absolute whitest potential.
Dr. Sacco will provide you with a system for follow-up treatment, which can be used at home over the next two days or so, as your teeth keep whitening and eventually settle to their final dazzling colour.

How to keep your smile white

After you’ve achieved the beautifully white smile you’ve been seeking for so long, it is important to keep it.
Always practice good oral hygiene and brush your teeth after consuming food or beverages that may stain.

Opalescence® Take-Home System
Teeth Whitening, Waterloo, Sydney
Opalescence® is a very popular take-home teeth whitening product.
Custom-fitted trays for your upper and lower teeth and plastic syringes containing the Opalescence® whitening gel (containing carbamide peroxide, the active ingredient) are provided for you to take home.
A snug fit is ensured for the dosing of the whitening gel by using the custom-fitted tray. This also minimises contact with gums. Opalescence® has the added benefit of potassium nitrate and fluoride to keep tooth sensitivity to a minimum and it does not leach like other take-home whitening gels.
We are pleased to offer two types of Opalescence kits®: either the day or the night system, whichever fits in best with your schedule. Typically, results should be obvious in 5–7days of the two-week treatment program.

The benefit of the Opalescence® take-home teeth-whitening system is the gradual shade improvement that happens over time – and it is also very cost effective.
